That's one. *Writes down in sciency notepad* 

 

You all have to be extremley harsh, judging everything as bad without 100% proof.

 

Not like you have faith in the company dispite some faults in a recent endevor.

Gamers are the worst consumers especially blind fanboys who latch unto everything these corporate developers say. 

 

Showing off your product is what builds the hype etc.

 

Neil's quote was about the Single Player & unfortunately for them their entire plot got leaked with the ending all over the net, not showing the MP is stupid, a trailer would do wonders for the game. 


No need to get fiesty , I really want something about the MP shown off too, but they want more people to start leaning towards to multiplayer mode before they even show anything off. It's their way of marketing and we can't do anything about it, fanboy or not, it's the truth.

Not saying anything about multiplayer doesn't build hype. If they wanted to build hype without showing much of the multiplayer then they could post small snippets of footage on something like Vine(basically gifs with sound).

 

 


I think it kind of does, people are begging for mp details now, NaughtyDog wants this kind of attention for their game to increase the number of buyers and have more people noticing TLOU, than if they reveal mp details, their's going to be way more people talking about it compared to now. They're building up everyones anticipation so if they reveal details there will be better end results for them.

 

Edit:


Neil Druckmann also said that he thinks it's better for a player when they don't know anything about the game and jump in blind not knowing what to expect.

Watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCTow3vfhlI

Neil says at 4:15 that they've revealed (like they've revealed anything) as little as possible to get enough hype about the game out there


It does build hype, but the wrong kind of hype.

 

I'm left wondering what is so bad about it that they wont show it. Most people who will be buying solely for MP will cancel pre-orders on that.

 

I'm not saying it is bad. It's just giving me a negative vibe.

I'm going to start counting how many times I see the word fanboy being used. 

 

It's going to be hard to keep track. 

 

But I'm dedicated to my work.


Have fun counting, the word Fanboy & Gaming are married for an enternity.

At least then there would be more critical people on this board, and a lot less of the ones who get boners from the ND logo.

There's a difference between being critical and spewing unwarranted negativity.

Their way of marketing? What exactly are they marketing by not showing people what they are spending money on?
Do you think it's right for a company to try & bait fans & consumers with MP perks if they pre-order the game but they don't want to show them what they will be playing / paying for?
Sorry if you felt I was being fiesty wasn't my intention at all. Smiley Happy
